The Mountain Goats Hit the Road As a Duo

Posted by - 04:16 AM on 04/02/14
As they have done from time-to-time in the past, The Mountain Goats will be playing some shows out west this summer as a duo, sans drummer Jon Wurster. In his typical outlandish fashion, frontman John Darnielle has dubbed the tour "The Mountain Goats Twin Inhuman Highway Fiends Tour 2014." Dates and a note from Darnielle are below.

Last year Peter and I did a couple of duo tours: the U.S. one took us as far west as Chicago, and the European one went all the way out to Barcelona. We don't really get a chance to do the duo thing much any more. It is a blast, and it gets us into all-ages rooms, and we get around to a bunch of songs that've been lurking in shadowy corners for ages waiting for the bright fuel of the footlights. I would like, therefore, to alert the west coast, my old stomping grounds, that we are stomping your way duo-style for the first time since 2007, and that all the shows are all-ages, and that if the all-ages duo tour from last summer is any indicator, it is going to be a huge party.

Seeing as none of these dates are anywhere near me at all, the best news about this imo is that Jon Wurster is free this summer so maybe Superchunk will tour some more. Really wanna catch them live and I dunno how much they're gonna book tours now that they know Laura can't come along.
